I Don't Like Taking Medicine

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 267 People

    I Do Okay Though

    I will be the first to admit that I don't like to take very much in the way of meds. I will take antibiotics when necessary and cold medicine if it gets bad, but I try and fight things off naturally. I do pretty well because my immune system is not always at the ready waiting...

    Luckily I Don't Have To

    there's nothing like being a healthy 26 year old female that makes me completely content.I hope I have at least another 26 years of amazing health (hopefully all of this 26 medication free)

    Who Does?

    but we gotta have meds when we need them. I'd rather get injected once and not have to remember taking pills when i'm sick.

    To Many Pills

      I wish I didn't have to, but I take pills morning noon and night.  I wish I could feel unaffected once in a while., but there's always that ringing in the ears, the tightness in the jaw, and a feeling of not being quite normal....but: What the heck is "normal...

    Don't Like the Side Effects

    I take antideprresants at one time or another. I don't like taking them because they always have funky side effects. The last one I took, Cymbalta, made me feel like crap. I felt better before I started taking the darn thing! It had me feeling cold, very jittery, sweaty all the...

    Unless I'm Very Sick, I Won't Take It

    I've had the flu before and refused medicine. My mom used to be able to tell if I was deathly sick if I ASKED for medicine, since it is so unlike me. I get colds but just stock up on Vitamin C. The only thing I DO take medicine for (and I avoid doing so if I can) is for my...

    Never Was the Pill-popper!

    I don't like taking meds, if I don't have to. For example, I suffer from frequent migraine headaches and I have a prescription for it. I am suppose to take one pill, as soon as the migraine starts, and take another one after six hours... if the first one doesn't work. Most times...

    Have you ever got a baggie half full of cat

    little then dumped the unused medicine in with the baggie of cat litter. Then add water to it? I've seen this happen so many times. They say it's a safe way toget rid of medicine. It starts to bubble a little bit in the baggie. Can you imagine what that does in your stomach?
